for this set o’ nails, i cut the side of the scotch tape strips. if you have different fancy scrap booking scissors, you could use those to go straight across also for different shapes. i just went with this because i was feeling kinda 80’s/90’s or something?
honestly, it was a pain in the balls to do and i probably won’t do it again. sometimes the triangles i cut wouldn’t get to sharp points kind of rounded/squared, additionally the tape template would break and i’d while i was removing it after applying the black. it’s because the piece was too thin and the polish was too heavy… i had to fight to get it off with tweezers twice because of how small of a piece was left behind…
it’s also kind of hard to get the triangles even close the same size/shape. maybe it’s because i have fat/heavy ikea house scissors…?
i thought this would be super easy, and i guess in theory it may have been if i’d been a little more patient. it was also the first time i’d done it, so i don’t know why i’m so complainy, lol.
